Amanda Schultz Brochu, MPH


Amanda joins the San Diego County Promotores Coalition with more than 15 years of nonprofit leadership experience, including a decade of working directly with community health workers and residents to strengthen individual and community health across two states and five countries. In the new role of Director, Amanda will draw upon her most recent work as Chief Program Officer for a collective impact nonprofit, where she facilitated region-wide efforts to create shared understanding and innovative solutions, including the development of community-centered policy, systems and environmental changes. Amanda’s passion for collective power building took root early through her education in public health at the University of Illinois Chicago’s School of Public Health and grew during her post-graduate fellowship with the University of Wisconsin Madison’s Population Health Sciences Institute, where she simultaneously helped build the Milwaukee Latino Health Coalition and supported the City of Milwaukee Health Department in engaging diverse communities throughout the region. Amanda continued to build expertise in local engagement strategies, spending two years organizing and capacity building to support community health workers representing 30+ communities in Southern Honduras working to strengthen local economies, food security and health literacy. 


Looking forward, Amanda could not be more excited to support the Coalition as it embarks on its next chapter, expanding its capacity to serve as a go-to resource for community health workers and promotores across San Diego County! She currently serves on Committees of the American Public Health Association’s Community Health Worker Section and the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network’s Community Health Worker/Promotoras Coalition. Amanda also brings with her a passion for nature, the arts and integrative health. In her free time, she can most often be found hiking, dancing or exploring new recipes.
